Bickleygate Holsteins are housed at New Sheepfold Farm located near the village of Great Ayton within the North Yorkshire Moors National Park .

The herd consists of 220 milkers with approx 150 followers

The cows are split into two milking groups with 60 cows milked through a Lely robot and 130+ through a 16/16 parlour.

The diet consists of grazed grass in the summer with concentrates fed in and out of the parlour. During the winter months (October-May) the cows are housed in cubicles and are fed on grass silage. No TMR or straights are fed.
